Go to the Stelvio Cipriani website  Stelvio Cipriani - Un'Ombra Nell'Ombra(Ring of Darkness) OST [Digit Moives - 2006]

Uní Ombra NellíOmbra ( Ring of Darkness) is the soundtrack from Italian 1979 demonic horror movie. It has more than a whiff of the mighty Goblin to it, and itís not surprising as it features Claudio Simonetti from Goblin on keyboards. This is the first time itís been been released in itís full form, with extra tracks, and what an atmospheric synthesizer  prog rock treat it is.

The main theme is superb, the main melodies is made up from plink plonk synth notes, with some neat atmospheric bass playing, and add to this is a crowing or breathing sound. It has a great funky sort of bounce, to the procedure too, it really is a memorable theme that will stick in your head. The other tracks that stray from the main theme are a mix of tribal drumming, eerier synth work outs, Laid back bassyness, pretty music box twinkling melodies,  bluesy guitar work and a interesting use of noise elements too. All composed with wonderfully inventive flare by Stelvio Cipriani. Making a enjoyable and varied musically ride.

This is all topped up with a great booklet  featuring the background of the film and great stills and poster work, the film looks great from the pictures. Sadly itís no longer in print, now all we need is someone to reissue the film, itís self. Of interested of course to soundtrack fans, the work of Goblin and atmospheric electronic driven prog.
